Just got this fone i wanted a cheap sidekick with my p910i this was the best option i cud have with all the great specs gr8 cellfone....
Well i got this phone last year it is a great phone it has all its functions, the compass is great. My comment about it is that it has not got MP3, bluetooth and cant take a memory card, but overall it is a great phone.
hey! everybody looking for a mobile go for 5140.I am working for mobile company and everyday i see mobiles but the best cell i came a cross is 5140.all new models sucks. they are all making money.but old cells are much better. best of luck if u are buying a new cell.
I recieved this phone off my mum when she got a new one in September. She had owned it for only a year. When i got the phone i was quite pleased with it as it did video and took pictures (my first camera phone!). But, after about a month or so, it started to freeze up. I solved this the first and second times by removing the back cover and taking the battery out. This just cut the power then I would turn it on again and set the date & time and it would be fine again. But, in late November/early December, it froze again. "No problem" I thought. Took the battery out reset it and all that, doing exactly the same as the previous times. When I went to turn it on, it wouldn't. It wouldn't charge either. So, I took it to my local phone shop to see if they could source the problem. AFter the obvious problems that could of occurred, he tried looking inside the phone and came to the conclusion that it was unrepairable. Thinking he may be wrong, i went to another phone shop for a 2nd opinion. But, they said exactly the same. I have just bought today a Siemens SF65 which looks rather more promising than my old 5140. I would recommend this phone, brand new, but beware of buying or recieving a second hand one as it may sting you good and proper like mine did...
I was hoping to get the 6230 but the 5140 has made a great replacement. I am from Trinidad and i have no complaints about this phone. It has almost everything! there are even features i am not sure how to use. The only thing its missing is MP3 compatibility. Other than that 10 out of 10 for this phone!!
The Nokia 5140 has more than 200kb of memory. In fact it has about aprox 4mb of memory for storing photo's, ringtones and other files. This should help those of you who are confused!
I am a university student and i purchased this phone recently. i am very happy to purchase this phone. Through buying this phone, my all dreams come true. This phone has lot of things which can only imagine by those persons which not have it. I am fully satisfied with the battery timming of this set. In last i want to say that this phone is very very much good in my point of view.

This phone feels solid and reliable.(although this is my 3rd handset) the tourch function has come in really handy at times but the thermometer is definetly not acurate.my hands are not large but i find i still push the wrong arrow keys.i wish the screen display was bigger,even if the phone had to be slightly larger.
